If you just started menstruating, or you want to switch to a pad, then this article is for you. Knowing how to use a sanitary pad will give you all the confidence you need to go through your period without any stain.

Follow these easy instructions.

1 Wash your hands first.

Always wash your hands before putting on a pad to ensure that you are not exposing yourself to any germs.

2. Relax.

The most convenient and pleasant approach for most women to insert or change a sanitary pad is while seated on a toilet. To make it simple to insert your pad, bring your panties down to just above your knees or hold your panties.

3. Remove a pad from its package

The majority of sanitary pads will be packaged in nylon. Often, the nylon is in the shape of a packet, making it easy to unfold and open without removing the adhesive cover. If at all possible, leave the cover strip on the pad until you're ready to insert it into your underwear.

4. Fix it in

You should place your pad such that it covers the appropriate space. If you're wearing a pad for the first time, it could be useful to set the pad in your underwear with the adhesive cover still on to prevent sticking. Reposition your panties and adjust the pad as necessary to feel fully covered. Bring your underwear down once again with caution to check where the pad is. Remove the adhesive cover from the pad's back once you've decided where you want to put it. This will reveal the sticky part there. Leaving the cover on your pad's wings for the time being Simply press the pad into your pants with the exposed adhesive facing up. The glue will assist in keeping the pad in place.

5. Apply the wings.

Some sanitary pads contain wings, which are adhesive flaps that help attach a pad to your panties .The adhesive cover on the wings can be taken off after your pad has been put into position. Just tuck the wings under your underwear and press firmly to ensure that the glue attaches.

7. Dispose

When the pad is filled, remove it from your panties, fold it, and wrap it in toilet paper before discarding it. Avoid flushing sanitary pads in the toilet as they tend to clog the toilet.

You pad needs to be replaced every four to eight hours. Consider changing your pad more regularly if your flow is heavy. Your pad can start to leak if you wear it for a prolonged period of time. Check your pad periodically to determine whether it needs to be changed if it has been filled.
